Plenary Session II : 50 Years Forward: Commemorating the Civil Rights Act

We honor the historic Civil Rights Act of 50th Anniversary and the leaders who continue to make an impact. However, as we witness record numbers of job loss and continue to face recurring economic shortfalls in urban communities we look to restore our infrastructure to support a livable wage and quality of life.
